Thanks to everybody for your great effort day by day to maintain this
Now..my problem.. :(
I'm experiencing some high fragmentations in one of my boxes, running
Last Friday/Saturday I ran some extra maintenance to my postgres DB
(reindexing, analyze, vacuum full, etc.) due suddenly we started to have
very slow performance in our queries. This maintenance helped, but later
I ran xfs_db -r <partition> -c "frag -f" and the
fragmentation was still high (close to 90%) and xfs_fsr reduced it to 7%
after to complete 10 loops for all my file systems in /etc/mtab.
Today in the evening I took some statistics and fragmentations level was
64% !! :(
#xfs_db -r /dev/sdc1 -c "frag -f"
actual 2531, ideal 906, fragmentation factor 64.20%
-kernel 2.4.19 + xfs 1.2 + some extra patches
meta-data=/proj isize=256 agcount=34, agsize=262144
data = bsize=4096 blocks=8885945, imaxpct=25
= sunit=0 swidth=0 blks, unwritten=0
naming =version 2 bsize=4096
log =internal bsize=4096 blocks=1200 version=1
= sunit=0 blks
realtime =none extsz=65536 blocks=0, rtextents=0
PE2650 PIII 1400 Mhz Dual CPU, 1Gb ram,
/proj is in RAID1 using Perc3/Di (Yes, I know this is a bad raid card,
but IMHO this is not causing the fragmentations)
Only postgres and a small mysql DB are using this partition.
-Can I ran xfs_fsr daily instead weekly?
-DO you think if I update my kernel and recreate my partition, using
version 2 (or 3) I can mitigate my fragmentation level? (Risky task)
-Is really postgres the frag killer here (if any one of you is running
postgres and only the data is one paritition..)
Suggestions? They will be very well appreciated ..
